Posted in the recommendation forum but didn't get many replies, so I'm posting again here because I'd really like some opinions.
A few months ago I bought the sennheiser 558s. I had been interested in the q701s for awhile but didn't have any experience with akg, so i went with the sennheiser's. well recently, i listened to the k271s and really liked the warmer (i guess?) sound, so this got me curious about the q701s again. So really I guess I'm asking if the q701s sound similar to the k271s, and if it doesn't, how does it sound compared to the 558. I'll also be completely honest and say that the lime q701s look so cool, it makes me WANT to like them regardless of how they sound. But reading what people have said about them makes me a little worried about the high trebles. I dont think listing the genres I listen to will help since I listen to nearly everything. For the record, it's not that I'm dissatisfied with the 558s, I'm just really curious about the Q701s. Also, I'm running my headphones through an X Fi titanium HD sound card
